Burnt beyond recognition from an accident at home with gasoline, clinging for life in a hospital at age 9, John O’Leary’s mother asked him if he wanted to live or die.

O’Leary remembers thinking only how much trouble he was going to get in with his dad.

“The only other thing I was thinking was. ‘Do I have the strength to take the next step in my journey?” says O’Leary, now married, a best-selling author and inspirational speaker.

O’Leary is also the keynote speaker for the 2017 Refresh Your Soul Conference, presented annually by the Parish Health Ministry of Episcopal Retirement Services (ERS), an event expanding in exponential fashion this year with a two-day symposium in partnership with the Dementia Care Summit at Xavier University.

To be held at The Cintas Center March 13 and 14, the 2017 Refresh Your Soul Conference, the primary fundraising vehicle for Parish Health Ministry, promises to be as insightful, thought-provoking, informative and fun as ever.

A longtime service of ERS, Parish Health Ministry serves as the ecumenical outreach between ERS (http://www.episcopalretirement.com) and 70+ churches across Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana.

Mr. O’Leary will be sharing his inspirational life story and buoyant messages to a crowd of caregivers and health care professionals seeking to understand more about life-changing conditions such as Alzheimer’s and Dementia.

He will be joined by renowned industry speakers Loretta Anne Woodward Veney and Teepa Snow; Ms. Snow spoke at the Refresh Your Soul 2016 event last year.

Alzheimer’s & Dementia: Overcoming the Struggles and Living Inspired” is the theme for 2917; day two is the annual Xavier Dementia Care Summit. Refresh Your Soul tickets are on sale for $69.

Dr. Henry Heimlich, world famous inventor of the Heimlich Maneuver, passes away at 96

His technique for treating choking victims saved thousands of lives

Cincinnati, Ohio, December 17, 2016 – Dr. Henry J. Heimlich, 96, passed away earlier today at Christ Hospital in Cincinnati, after complications from a massive heart attack suffered on Monday in his home at Deupree House in the Hyde Park neighborhood of Cincinnati, Ohio.

His family has issued the following statement:

“We are saddened by the loss of our father, Dr. Henry J. Heimlich, who died on December 17, 2016 at the age of 96.

Dad was a hero to many people around the world for a simple reason: He helped save untold numbers of lives through the innovation of common-sense procedures and devices. But he was not only a physician and medical inventor, he was also a humanitarian and a loving and devoted son, husband, father, and grandfather.

“From the time Dad began his medical career in New York City, to the time he practiced as a thoracic surgeon in Cincinnati, he was committed to coming up with simple, effective ideas that helped save lives and significantly improved people’s quality of life.

He grew up the son of a social worker in New York State, which deeply influenced his drive to help other people. He loved the ocean and served in the US Navy during World War II, volunteering for extra-hazardous duty, which led to him to working as a doctor behind enemy lines in the Gobi Desert of China. Later, he named his small sailboat, The Repose, after the hospital ship he spent time on after serving in China.

“Most know of Dad’s name for the Heimlich Maneuver, the method he devised to save people who are choking. The “maneuver,” as he called it, not only has saved countless lives, it allows anyone, even children, to save the life of a choking victim. But as his memoir, Heimlich’s Maneuvers explains, Dad accomplished much more.

“As a young surgeon, Dad was the first American to devise and perform a total organ replacement. Later, he came up with a device that saved thousands of soldiers’ lives during the Vietnam War. The Heimlich Chest Drain Valve is still used worldwide for patients undergoing chest surgery.

Dad was firm in his convictions and passionate for his causes. He didn’t play politics well. Instead, he was single-minded in his quest to find better ways to save lives. Dad dreamed that anything was possible in the field of medicine, even when critics said otherwise.”

The family requests that those who wish to honor our father’s legacy make a contribution to Heimlich Heroes, a nonprofit organization that teaches children around the world how to save a life with the Heimlich Maneuver.  For more information on the life of Dr. Heimlich or to make a donation to Heimlich Heroes, please visit: http://henryheimlich.com.
